Foxes at Dusk

In the city,

Drab, lanky shadow

Slips between parked cars,

Competes with gulls and crows

By toppled rubbish bins,

Emerging silently

Under street-light sulphur,

Leaching rust from fur.


In the country,

Rich russet lustre

Cavorts in lush green fields,

Barking at gulls and crows

Under a canopy

Of sunset and cloud,

Burnished copper bright

In the rosy light.
